~Please feel free to take these adorable vintage postcard graphics~

~You are always welcome to take my graphics and backgrounds from my website http://www.foursistersinacottage.com/ ~

~I just LOVE these old postcards, have fun, can't you see some with glitter?~

~Hello Everyone~

I'm not sure why but I am really getting nervous for my 4 month check since my last chemo treatment. CAN YOU BELIEVE it's BEEN FOUR MONTHS TOMORROW since my last treatment and it seems like yesterday. TOO MANY ICKY MEMORIES, I would rather forget. I will go in and say hello to the gals in the chemotherapy room but I know I won't really want to go in that room and see all those effect by cancer with IV's in them.

I go for blood work and to talk with Dr. Ghosh, my oncologist. While we are talking, my blood test results will come in. I just got off the phone with my big brother Lee who told me they have "markers" that will tell them if there is anything to be conserned about with the cancer. I had no idea, LOL.....I didn't know why they needed to take blood if they couldn't find the cancer in the first place by taking blood. Silly me....guess I should do more homework but I would really rather put all of this behind me. If you get a chance, please pray for my nerves and that my appointment goes well. Also, my big brother Lee's wife, Susie is having surgery on her arm tomorrow, so we will be going over to the hospital right after my 9:00am appointment. Pray for her too!!!

Then, in the afternoon, I have one more doctor's appointment with my almost 18 year old, Kristi. She is going in for her very first female check up and is very nervous about cervical cancer and now breast cancer that runs in our families. Pray she doesn't get too worked up about all of it as she is my drama queen!!!! She is worried that she might have one or both. I told her to chill out and stop thinking that way!!! I can understand her worry but at the same time, why borrow trouble. (yeah Amy, think about that tomorrow while you are at the doctors yourself)

Oh, and it looks like my computer won't be here until next week. In the meantime, I am going to try to limp through putting "EASTER TREASURES" on the website this upcoming weekend. It's all ready, it's just waiting for pictures and prices!!! I AM SO READY FOR SPRING!!!

Well, I guess it's already tomorrow.
Hope all went well for you Amy. I can remember how hard those checkups were. It does get easier with time.

Thank you for posting the beautiful Easter postcards.

I will be thinking of you.
Take care.


Hi Amy, I don't get over as often as I would like to, but think of you often & pray for you. Hope all goes well with your checkup & with your daughter's first visit, it can be very scary.
Just adore all those wonderful Easter pics, I think I am going to have to borrow some. Take care always.

Amy, I am lifting you up this morning with thoughts of peace and continued healing, and for your daughters peace of mind. Thank you for the graphics and I got my sheet music in the mail last week...love it!

Hi Amy,

Will be praying for you today...just remember where our peace comes from, the one and only Jesus!! Don't know what I would do if he wasn't in my life.

Love your vintage Easter cards...I am so excited I won your rose chalk drawing on eBay. Can't wait to get it.

It is normal for your daughter to be nervous after everything you have been through, she just needs some reassurance right now, will pray for her also. My friend Kathy has just been in your same boat and continues to be cancer free. You girls rock!!


Shelley said...

Hello Dear Amy, praying all goes wonderful for you and your Dear daughter. Also, for your sister in law. You have come through so much, you are bound to get some great news from your blood work.

Thanks so much for the sweet Easter greetings. They are just divine.

God Bless you Amy, Shelley

You will do great at your appointment. You are stronger than you realize. I wish your daughter lots of luck...the many joys of being a young woman!!
Thanks a bunch for the adorable Easter images- I did copy and save them. Easter is one of my very favorite holidays. Just wish I could dress up my daughters like I did for Easter when they were tiny girls!!

Hi Amy, sorry I didn't see this in time to let you know I'd be thinking of you. I get nervous for doctors no matter what, let alone having all the reasons you do. And blessings to your daughter, I remember that "first" visit. I'm sure she'll be fine.
(((((hugs to you)))))

Amy, I hope this will serve as a comfort to your daughter. I have glaucoma, which is a hereditary type of disease, too. I was diagnosed early and have meds to control it. My doc said that by such an early watch, they will be able to keep a check on the optic nerve ...SO... she is at such an advantage---they will forever monitor her closely to hopefully keep her healthy her entire life!! Just a different take on how we can look at this picture!! I've already said a prayer for peace and calmness for you. JS
